This interactive and discussion-based course teaches career planning through a lens of personal and professional leadership. We explore modern leadership concepts and apply them to career planning to best equip course participants with the information, resources, confidence, and self-awareness necessary to find success in career inside and beyond academia. Course activities include self-assessment exercises, career and leadership related discussions, informational interviewing/networking, and other activities to increase students’ leadership skills. The course culminates with a “Leadership Development Plan” presentation where each student presents their career vision and their short-and long-term career goals. This course is open to all GSBS students, but highly recommended for post-candidacy PhD students and MS students in their final year of study.
